Single-segment low% speed run of Resident Evil as Jill Valetine, using only the Knife and 4 extra healing items, done on May 28 2005. Available in three versions: low quality, normal quality, and 60 fps high quality.
Author's comments: This is a start to finish single-segment completion of Resident Evil 1 for the psx using Jill. The following run is a knife-only run; this means that only the knife is used throughout the entire duration of this run. The final completion time is 1 hour 9 minutes and 17 seconds: currently the best time in the world. This run was recorded on a VHS tape and sent in to this site: there is no disputing its legitimacy.
Overall this is a decent run. I know I could do better but I don't plan on playing through this game again for a long time. I had to heal on 4 occasions throughout this run which could have been improved on and the storage chest was used only once. I estimate that the fastest possible time for a knife only run would be between 1:07:00 - 1:07:59.
There were several small mistakes in this run but I'm still satisfied with the outcome; though the zombies in the guest house really did a number on me (I shouldn't have gotten hit at all...but messed up). I'm satisfied with the boss fights and even ended this run with a flawless victory over Tyrant.
For PAL gamers you should note that your times are not comparable to this run. The PAL version of Resident Evil runs slower than the NTSC version and as a result the finishing time for PAL gamers will never be this low. I can't say for certain what the actual time difference is but I expect it to be between 8 - 11 minutes.

Thank you man, because of your walkthrough of it with a knife I can beat RE in 1:51 with only a knife. I can get to the Tyrant without saving! I beat it knife-only for the first time today.

That´s the most perfect run i´ve ever seen on RE. I´ll try to send a speed run that i´ve made, but was on PSOne, Jill, normal mode, on 1:15:xx, but using weapons, no dying/save/cure. Unfortunately i´ve not filmed it, but i´ll do it again, and better.
Congratulations buddy, you looked like a soaped Jill in this run, awesome! 5 star ranked.
